Going through a dollar bin at a show this past weekend I was able to add to the Bobby Hull puzzle on the back of the 1976-77 O-Pee-Chee WHA American All-Stars subset. Lacroix is, surprisingly, the WHA’s all-time leading scorer by over a hundred points which is not bad considering Hull and Howe, albeit aging, played each season the league was in existence. Lacroix bounced around the WHA playing a year with the Blazers in Philadelphia before joining the New York Golden Blades as they became the Jersey Knights. The team was then purchased by Ray Croc of McDonald’s and San Diego Padres fame. He then played a year in Houston and another in New England, staying with the team for their inaugural season in 1979. This is not a good looking card. I’ve never been a fan of studio shots, particularly head shots. No offense to Lacroix, but he’s not exactly a model and he’s sort of got a cyborg thing going with his eyes. But that’s not the reason why I bought this card or I’m making this post: it’s Bobby Hull’s noggin on the back.
